I have to share this touching video.

When the owner of Sally called, she was very worried. Sally is a 7 year old Flat coated retriever who suddenly seemed to not be able to walk. Her veterinarian felt that Sally had injured her low back, probably a disk injury. She was given medications for pain and inflammation and told that it might be useful to have a consultation with an orthopedic veterinarian if the medications did not do the trick.
Years ago when I injured my knee, (ACL and medial meniscus), surgery was not a good option. So I endured the pain of arthritis settling in, discomfort whenever I walked, and limitations on doing many things I loved doing. Then along came PEMF! (Pulsed Electro Magnetic Force)
I borrowed a PEMF machine, and after using it daily for two weeks, my knee pain was dramatically reduced. I could exercise enough to rehab my knee without surgery. Since then, I have used this excellent therapy on many people, and, through my affiliation with several veterinary offices, am now using it with animals – mostly dogs, some horses, and some cats.
Cats are such interesting creatures. They have that independent streak and are cuddly when they wish to be. The feeling of a cat lying in the crook of my arm while taking a nap is such a relaxing feeling.
Cats are hunters. They are sleek, toned, alert, and agile. When something moves they notice. They can jump on high surfaces and are so light on their feet that it seems effortless. They have no clavicles (collar bone) so they are able to squeeze through spaces much smaller than you would think. Their whiskers are highly sensitive to help them locate where they are in space. They love to groom themselves and can be picky about much in their environment..
It is time for barrel racing in western North Carolina!! What an exciting, fast sport for the young and old. You ride your horse into the arena, make sharp turns around 3 barrels, then sprint out. It is timed, of course. In these parts, it is a great family and friend time as well.
